The need for general anesthesia and the cost and pain due to metal staples required for fixing the mesh are the major reported disadvantages of laparoscopic total extraperitoneal (TEP) hernia repair. We studied the feasibility and results of TEP done under spinal anesthesia with non-fixation of the mesh (SA-NF). This group was compared to TEP done under general anesthesia with non-fixation of the mesh (GA-NF) and repairs done under SA with fixation of the mesh (SA-F). A retrospective analysis… CONTINUE READING
